In 2008 Monica Robbers, an American criminologist, defined it as “the phenomenon in which jurors hold unrealistic expectations of forensic evidence and investigation techniques, and have an increased interest in the discipline of forensic science.” First time this term was used in 2004 when USA Today published an article written by Richard Willing called “ ‘CSI effect' has juries wanting more evidence”.
